When Conner Frankamp wants to light it up, he can light it up.
The North senior dropped in 48 points against East, Tuesday night in a 71-63 win at home.
The Redskins (13-2) remained in front in the City League race over second place East with the win.
Despite his 48 points, Frankamp and North had to contend East's offense and sophomore Samajae Jones. He dropped in back to back triples in the second quarter to give East an eight point lead, it's largest over North all night.
It was all Frankamp and the rest of the offense needed to come back, started by Zach Beard intercepting a pass and taking to the rim. Followed by a pop up three-pointer from Frankamp, giving them a 34-30 lead at halftime.
The game continued to go back and forth in the second half, neither team putting together much of a run, just trading baskets. Frankamp and Jones both shined in the game but JJ Normore had solid effort in the loss, popping up a three over Frankamp to cut the Redskin lead to just two possessions. Jones rattled home an incredibly long three-pointer to make it a little more interesting at the end, but it was over by then.
North has two more games on the road this week in an odd three game week. Same goes for East.
